Real Wedding: A Homey Wedding in the Canadian Countryside

rustic outdoor wedding ceremony with bench seating by Canadian DIY Backyard Wedding by Clove Photography

“It was an amazing event not just a wedding, where every guest was made to feel like part of the family,” shares Clove Photography. When a wedding is described as such, we know to sit up and pay attention because something good is coming our way. Shauna and Jamie’s DIY backyard wedding, infused with lovely rustic and vintage elements, was all that Clove Photography describes and more. The bride and groom focused their attention on creating a celebration that made all their guests (regardless of relation) feel like family; they decided that Shauna’s childhood home in the Canadian countryside was the perfect setting for their day. From there, no detail was overlooked. The old, cabin-style home that Shauna grew up in created a cozy place where she could enjoy a morning of getting ready and drinking mimosas with the girls. Just outside the back door, the yard was prepared for the couple’s intimate ceremony with a rustic door-frame entry way, baby’s breath florals and bench-style seating. Along the dirt road leading to the festivities, they gave guests a warm arrival with unique signage, including a huge, cursive-type “welcome” sign that we can’t get enough of, and an itinerary station fashioned out of wooden crates. Following their vow exchange, Shauna and Jamie treated everyone to an outdoor cocktail hour, where guests could enjoy the bride and groom’s favorite signature drinks and appetizers! But, wait… it gets even better. The event then transitioned into a tented reception that can only be described as breathtaking. Vintage, hand-picked details selected by the couple and Jacqueline Rae Weddings and Events graced every surface while fresh lavender filled the air. A popcorn and pie bar, also styled gorgeously, provided fun snacks for guests of every age. However, above, all it was the company of the two lovebirds that made the day – friends and family from far and wide left this day with full hearts and great memories!
